Today, Kim gave us a recipe to "Make It Golden."
I followed Kim's recipe pretty faithfully, including several layers of her texture Kristin.
Here are my adaptations :
1) My gradient was sepia instead of black to white. That's what was loaded and it seemed to work ...
2) I also added a Golden Delicious Curves Action from Everyday Elements,
since I wasn't getting the desired effect in the Levels panel.
3) I also added a frame which is visible on the bottom but not the top.
This week, I also figured out Layer Styles and how use them to get a 3-D effect in text. I've been growing tired of flat text. Yahoo! If you look closely, the text above has some depth to it.
Here's the original image--not great as it was taken when the sun was at it's peak.
Too many shadows. Thank goodness for digital photo editing software!
